re: Why I hate Infinite Scrolling VIEW POST


I don't know when the infinite scroll will end.

This is my big one.

I was adding books to my massive Books Amazon wishlist today and wondered how large the list is. Navigated to the list. There's no totals or pages... only an infinite scroll. Like, the bookmarks kinda did a lazy load thing after a while, but at least I had a number to tell me I had over a 120 things left to read (I'm now down to 0 though!).

Offer manual triggers for infinite scrolling with buttons.

If you're doing this, I'd just say go full pagination with buttons for navigating instead of infinite scrolling. All or nothing for giving me control of my browsing.


I had over a 120 things left to read (I'm now down to 0 though!).

Did you just remove all your bookmarks? :P


It was tempting, especially since every time I read something off the list I seemed to gain 3 more to read later.

But! I actually read them all. And anything I wanted to save as a resource later, I open sourced as a list with notes and categories :D

Eventually, I want to take my snippets of saved notes and links and make a webpage of them all with markdownjs or something like that.

Congratulations! I also have trouble keeping up with my reading list. I took a look at your list of resources, very interesting, thanks for sharing!

Be careful or you'll add more things to your list of things to read! :)
